• We end up eating outside a lot!
  • We are nearly-broke grad students :(
  • To cook, we have no idea where to begin!
  • We are so not alone :)

What it does

  • So it runs alongside your Google Assistant, which means virtually any smart phone / Google Home devices
  • Considering what you have in your inventory, and your food preferences (vegetarian?), gives you awesome recipes
  • Also consider your cost/time availability (grad student priorities),

How we built it

Python + Requests + Flask + Google Actions

Challenges we ran into

  • Had to learn to use a whole bunch of APIs overnight!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Learned to use a whole bunch of APIs overnight :)

What we learned

What's next for CookStarter
